About Guitar Wireless Systems

Guitar wireless systems are a good alternative to using cables from your guitar to amp. Using a wireless system allows you much greater freedom of movement on stage.

Wireless systems are typically made up of two main parts: a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter plugs into the guitar and sends out the converted radio signal of your playing. The receiver is the device that normally resides on top of your amp (or sometimes in your pedal board) and catches the signal, transferring it to the amp for output.

Transmitters typically require batteries in order to work, whilst receivers plug into mains power. Several companies make wireless guitar systems in a range of styles to suit different budgets.

Wireless systems are either digital or analog. Digital systems seem to be becoming the norm, with devices utilizing the same 4G network as mobile devices. Analog systems use a set range of frequencies which are becoming less and less available over the years.
